For a night by the fireplace… GOLDEN HOT TODDY:

  • 50 ml Aberfeldy 12
  • 15 ml Local Honey Syrup*
  • 20 ml Lemon Juice
  • Spice Mix

* Local Honey Syrup: 100g of honey, 64g water, stir and leave to chill. Bottle and use accordingly.

For Friendsgiving… THE HOWDY’S DRAM:

  • 300 ml Palo Cortado Sherry
  • 250 ml Herbal Liqueur
